    Oscar                    8" x 10"              oil on linen panel
I haven't painted a dog for quite awhile and Oscar was a real pleasure. This is a friend's dog, and my husband caught a photo while on the river fishing a couple days ago. I love Oscar's intensity and discipline as he waits for whatever the the next cast might bring. This one's not for sale, and you can see a larger version by clicking on the image.

Pin It


  1. Oscar's perfect, Mary. You make it look so easy. If only!

  2. The stance is perfect - poised and ready to sprint. Love it when the tail goes straight out like that. Hope you do more.

  3. Love the reflections in the water from this handsome dog. The water, as always, is painted so beautifully!!!

  4. Nice work! I loved hearing you on AHA radio. I guess we missed each other by one week at Scottsdale Artist School. I would have loved to have met you. I really enjoyed your postings form your workshop too. That was so nice how you shared all of that. Happy Holidays to you.

  5. Bonjour chère Mary,

    Oscar est un superbe labrador qui comme beaucoup de ses congénères adorent l'eau et le jeu...
    J'aime les reflets de son corps dans l'eau.
    Tu as une facilité innée de peindre cet environnement que sont les bords de rivière. Tu es la magicienne de la nature.

    Je te souhaite de très joyeuses fêtes à toi et à tous ceux que tu aimes...
    Avec plein de gros bisous ❄︎ ♡ ❄︎ ☃ ❄︎ ♡ ❄︎

  6. A wonderful portrait of man's best friend!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you!
